NYSDEC Announces the Implementation of an Environmental Information Management System (EIMS)

May 20, 2010

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has implemented an Environmental Information Management System (EIMS) to facilitate the submission of environmental data in an electronic form and to create a centralized database that includes GIS information.   The EIMS uses the database software application EQuISTMfrom EarthSoft® Inc.  These products were selected in accordance with NYS procurement processes. 

We are pleased to announce that some types of data can be submitted electronically to the Division of Environmental Remediation (DER).  DEC recently completed development of a format that must be used for uploading data into the EIMS.  This format file and additional information are on DER’s website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/62440.html.  This page provides information for the data providers to assist them with providing electronic environmental data to DER.  The data format and electronic data processor (EDP) download are linked from this site.  Please check with your department contact to determine if data should be submitted this way.

In this Office Hours session, H2A will demonstrate Risk3T and how it integrates with EQuIS.

This session will be held at 11am EDT (-5 GMT) and 6pm EDT (-5 GMT) on May 20th.

Upcoming Office Hours- The Action Level API, May 13, 2010

May 4, 2010

The Action Level Application Programming Interface (API) provides EQuIS users with the ability to create custom and advanced action levels. For example, the Action Level API may be used to create hardness-based action levels where a calculation is used to determine the action level value based on the hardness result.

In this Office Hours session, a member of the EarthSoft Development Team will demonstrate and discuss how to use the Action Level API.

This session will be held at 11am EDT (-5 GMT) and 6pm EDT (-5 GMT) on May 13th and also at 3pm EDT (-5 GMT) on May 14th.

To sign up for a session, please send us an email at officehours@earthsoft.com or register on the Office Hours page and indicate your session of preference. Note that spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
